Clubhouse Facilities - Your 19th Hole

"A wide range of refreshments & comfortable surroundings"

In 1919 the golf course and the rest of the Dunstanburgh estate was purchased by Mr (later Sir) Arthur Munro Sutherland from the Eyres trustees.

Shortly after his purchase of the golf course he announced that it was his intention to remodel the course “to secure the provision of nine holes unsurpassed by anything in the county”. The plan was to extend the course to 18 holes after the nine hole course had been “properly developed and brought to a state bordering on perfection”.


Visitors and members alike enjoy the benefits of the friendly service and well appointed facilities of the clubhouse here at Dunstanburgh. There is a large car park, which stretches right around to the rear of the premises and is large enough for coaches.

Once inside, there is an immediate feeling of space and comfort. Irene Williams and her staff are ready to make you feel right at home. Try the excellent food and beverages on offer whilst enjoying the magnificent view across the opening holes to the sea.

All parties, functions and outside catering can be accommodated by Irene and her dedicated staff. Nothing is too much trouble, a smiling face is always ready to greet you and your party.

Our clubhouse offers you comfortable and spacious surroundings with a separate restaurant, lounge/bar, toilets and changing rooms with shower facilities for golfers.

With the help of local labour - mainly fishermen working outside the fishing season - the course was gradually extended to twelve holes by about 1932 and fifteen by 1935. The golf course was maintained during this period by a horse-drawn six-foot wide cutter for the fairways and hand-pushed cutters for the greens and tees. This equipment was kept in the wooden shed at the end of the road from Dunstan Steads farm which is still standing at the present day.
Today we have 18 glorious holes to enjoy and savour.
